In my last post, I talked about different things you can do this Labor Day weekend. That got me thinking, there is so much to do this weekend that my post about it showing 5 of the best things to do is not enough.In fact, there is so much to do in Denver, and the state of Colorado in general, that I should post about it more often.
That is why starting this week, you guys can expect weekly updates on what to do in Denver every week. So, aside from the activities I listed on my Labor Day Weekend post, here are some more activities you can do this week:
Last Chance to Get Wet at Elitch’s Water Park
As summer ends, this is your last chance this year to enjoy Elitch’s Water Park. Cool your tails off their giant slides and other water attractions. Oh, and admission to the water park also includes admission to Elitch’s Theme park. So, you can get your adrenaline running on rides, then cool off on the pools.
